I will ask my Tech for the procedure...to be sure I understand...you or someone you know has a Consult 11/111 and you want to know what to do to program the +2?

Yes, that's correct. I just need the procedure - a friend of mine has access to a consult II/III, but he doesn't know how to do it!

Thnx for the help

If there is an Infiniti or Nissan dealership,they should have a Consult 2/3(all US dealers are going to 3's).They may have been trained to use it,if not I will post,not PM the procedure

Five steps

1 Select engine
2 Select- Work support
3 Select- Target Ignition timing
4 select- up 2 degrees(that small o)
5 Select- update

Nice !!

Thanks brnjug, you really saved the day ;)

Just a short question left:

Hook up the unit to the ALDL port...underdash drivers side
Is this the ALDL same as the ODB II Port (shape see image) located lower left of drivers side? I remember ALDL being the old protocol used before they had ODBI...

Found it inside the "Engine Control"-Part of the FX Service Manual (see attached files).

@brnjug: One last question:

After doing the procedure, shouldn't we use the option "IDLE AIR VOL LEARN" under the "Work Support" Menu? The timing advance most probably changes the IDLE Rpm, so we should re-learn the needed air volume for the new rpms. Can you corroborate this??

Not many have a $10,000.00 Consult 2/3 to utilize the correct timing procedure, however- :lol:

I thhink the issue these 2 individuals raise are dealers who do not know what you are talking about when you ask for +2 timing,not that they may own one...although Consult2's will be showing up soon since Consult 3's are the norm at dealerships

Jep - it's not about having the consult2/3! But these tec guys sitting on their consults often don't know a f*** on how to use this wonderful tool.

I was recently talking to one of those guys in a major garage nearby. He said: "I never adjusted timing on any car before...and I'm not sure if it can be done with consult....".
Sick bast*rd isn't he?... doing service on hundreds of nissans/infinitis and still has no clue on how to use his own consult...this is somewhat SCARY!!!

That's a pretty sad commentary, all right-
